    Default why i chose the s5 over the m8 and 5s

    Sure the s5 isn't made of metal, but im a lot less scared if I drop it. I love the way it feels in the hand. I love the camera. And I love the screen. That's number one for me. Screen screen screen. The iPhone pales in comparison for obvious reasons.

    As for the m8 I can't handle the on screen buttons and huge bottom bezel. I like the idea of the m8. Had it for a few days. But so much wasted space.

    Here's to hoping I can stick with the s5 for the long run!

    Hope you enjoy your S5! I am trying to talk the GF into getting the S5 ... and if I could just get money I would snag an M8...

    But the M8 Prime is suppose to come out soon (their phablet) ... To many phones :P. Again I hope you enjoy your S5!

    One of the reasons I moved to the S5 from the M8: The phone and many screens on the M8 are so dark that you can't see what you're doing, e.g; when trying to dial a phone number parked in a car. Any bright lighting washes out my ability to see the screens that are essential.
    On the S5, all the screens have bright backgrounds and thick black or dark typefaces to make it easier to see. I like the removable battery.
